Courtney: Genisys Is A “Reset”


After revealing that Terminator: Genisys is going to be PG-13 (or probably is going to be), Jai Courtney today gives new insight on how connected the new movie is going to be to the original movies.  The producers have been hyping canon staying intact and the old movies being respected.

Here is what Courtney has been saying:

“I think it’s going to be really cool what they’ve done with it.  It’s curious, I’ve been thinking a lot about how we actually frame—people want to know if it’s a sequel or a reboot.  A word that kind of came to me is that it’s more of a ‘reset.’  That’s the awesome thing about when you play with time travel.  We can kind of get away with, you know, maybe we’re introduced to a world that audiences know but circumstances can change and that shifts the course of everything.”
And as for how important the original movies are, Courtney reveals that “if they wanted to watch [the first two films] they could but I don’t think that if they hadn’t they’ll see our film and be completely lost.”  Terminator: Genisys is directed by Alan Taylor and will be released by Paramount Pictures on July 1st, 2015.
